At the Child Advocacy Center, our mission is twofold – serving the needs of abused and neglected children in Southwest and South Central Missouri, and providing education to break abuse cycles and ultimately prevent child abuse in our region.
We are the largest child advocacy center in the state of Missouri, serving 16 counties in the southwest and south central regions of the state.
CAC is accredited by the National Children’s Alliance, and serves as a safe, caring place where abused children can begin their journeys toward justice, healing, and an end to their abuse.
Our national accreditation demonstrates our commitment to meeting and adhering to the highest standards of practice set for child advocacy centers in the United States.
Our professional staff members place the needs of the children first as they work with compassion and purpose, collaborating with law enforcement, the Children’s Division and other agencies to investigate and prosecute each individual case.
